Fresh off the Porsche press comes the Boxter, hot on the heels of the latest 911 Carrera. The svelte and refined model updates Porsche’s entry-level convertible to its third generation, and involves a wider track and 20-inch wheel aesthetic overhaul. The 2013 Boxter comes lighter with new sheet metal, a power-operated top that stows behind the seats, a new electromechanical power steering system that significantly enhances handling and dynamics, and most importantly more powerful engines. With its direct fuel-injected flat-6 engine, electrical system recuperation, thermal management and engine start-stop function, Porsche expects this model will achieve approximately 15 percent greater fuel-efficiency than its predecessor. The standard Boxter gets a 2.7-liter flat-6 in place of its previous 2.9-liter engine, and an increased peak output of 265 horsepower, while the Boxter S’s 3.4-liter now produces 315 horsepower (improvements on the current models’ 255 and 310 respectively). Coupled with a seven-speed PDK dual clutch (instead of the six-speed manual), Porsche says the Boxster will accelerate from 0-to-60 kmh in 5.4 seconds, and the Boxster S in 4.7 seconds.
